A Mixtape for the Emancipation


A made this mix for a very close friend who is in the process of leaving the safety net of “home” for the great wide unknown. As someone who has gone through this admittedly frightening experience more than once, I understand how important a little inspiration can be during this time of change. And, of course, I made sure to include fellow Pratt-alum Matt & Kim, Japanther and The Goddamn Rattlesnake (name-droppin’)!
